This time we managed to lock down a long overdue visit to some friends we've been wanting to catch up with for a long time, the Coopers. Finally all stars were aligned, and we went over to Tauranga to visit them for a couple of days.
Nathan and Jono are longtime friends from flight school. I got to
know Jono when we lived in Copenhagen, and he played a big part at our
wedding - he was the one doing the Haka!
Last time we saw them, their kids were still toddlers... that's how long ago it's been!!
They have Jackson, and twins Jorja and Jayden. All the kids got on like a house on fire, and dove straight in the pool of course. They had a great setup in their backyard, with a pool and a jacuzzi.
The water balloon fight got serious once the dads joined in too..!
Playing 'Four square' in the street.
A great couple of days! Thank you Coopers, hopefully we'll be back next time again!!
